The Mobotix IO Board is used as an interface between the door cam module (T24M), the Siedle modules, Siedle power supply, door opener, door contacts and external light.
In new constructions, MOBOTIX recommends connecting a CAT7 cable directly to the door station. In renovations of older buildings, the existing bell wires can be used further together with the Mx2wire technology (also with Siedle Vario).
The T24 outdoor station requires just one cable for data and power (via a CAT cable or two wires with Mx2wire) to connect to a PoE switch and thereby to any expandable Ethernet network. In addition to the outdoor station, you can also install additional modules indoors that can connect to the T24 over the network via a switch or MxBus. In this way, the keypad is also the perfect access module for adjacent spaces or rooms. Or you can use a transponder card to switch the alarm system in the building on and off. Additional MOBOTIX modules are currently in development.
The MOBOTIX info module for the T24 outdoor station is not only a weatherproof module with a backlit house number field lit by economical, long-lasting LEDs. It can also be ordered with an optional Mx2wire unit. This unit is needed if the T24 is to be connected to the PoE switch with an existing bell wire via a second Mx2wire unit instead of directly using an Ethernet cable.
The Mx2wire technology was developed by MOBOTIX and is characterized by the fact that it is able to transfer data and power simultaneously using two-wire cables such as bell wire, coaxial cable, etc.
The T24 modules were engineered by MOBOTIX to be retrofitted into the Siedle Vario module system at little additional effort and cost. The individual Siedle modules are integrated into the system using a specially-developed MOBOTIX IO terminal board that can be clicked directly into the Siedle module located directly below the MOBOTIX camera module. MOBOTIX offers the modules in four Siedle colors.
